We love incorporating metallics into our bride’s wedding palette because they add a special contrast and shine.

Real Wedding: Alicia + Sammy

In an effort to fight the winter blues, we’re thinking back to last Spring when Alicia and Sammy wed under the cherry blossoms of Big Canoe. With the big pink tree in full bloom, perfect weather, and the sweetest couple, this North Georgia wedding day was shear Spring perfection. We had the pleasure of seeing these newlyweds at their cousin’s wedding a couple weeks ago and were thrilled to learn that they have new life “blooming” in their little family with baby Olivia on the way. Best wishes to A + S as we remember their wedding day.

Winter Skin Remedies

It’s unusually cold in the South these past weeks. At least that’s what we tell ourselves each year when the cold snap hits. (Snowpocalypse anyone?) After spending four cold winters in Manhattan, I have trained myself to have some sort of lip balm and lotion in my bag come this time of year. But this season, I noticed that my winter beauty regimen includes much more than those two products. I have rounded up my favorite, tried-and-true (by yours truly) Winter Skin Remedies to help winterize from head to toe.

Valentine’s Day Dessert Bar

To me, Valentine’s Day is best spent cozied up at home with your loves, whether that’s your fiancé and pup (like in my case) or your kids or your best girlfriends. And what a better way to celebrate your sweethearts than with sweets? My take on a Valentine’s Day Dessert Bar is a sugary array of goodies with personalized, lovey-dovey touches.

New “Stories” Series

I have the pleasure of working with the most amazing and inspiring people, from brides to small business owners to creatives of all kinds. And I often find that our lives, outside of the project du jour or the wedding we’re co-planning, intersect in the most interesting ways. Like many, I am a collector, an avid hostess, a crafter, a shopper, a mushy-gushy romantic, and until this coming Fall, a bride. My collections, my heirlooms, my tips and tricks for life, my home projects, my fool-proof recipes, my experiences, and my favorite things all tell a story about who I am and how I live.
